(KSL News) Sixteen-year-old Robyn Atkinson is home with her family today, but the questions surrounding events that triggered an Amber Alert for her remain.

According to Sandy police, the teen disappeared Friday afternoon. Atkinson has a learning disability. Her family doubted she'd be able to call home or tell anyone where she lived.

Atkinson was found last night after police got a tip to search another Sandy residence. Atkinson was there and appeared to be OK.

Detectives questioned a 17-year-old boy, but released him. They told us they don't believe he is a flight risk. They did not rule out pressing charges as the investigation progressed.
